Newcastle Vision Support

Ring around


We have a dedicated team of volunteers who ring a number of service users each week.  This valuable service is a lifeline to those people who are house bound and/or isolated.  By receiving a weekly phone call service users are able to build up relationships and feel less isolated. 

If you would like more information about ring around volunteers then please contact Julie McCormack at NSBP on 0191 232 7292 or email:

Quote from one of our service users:

"My ring around volunteer also has a visual impairment so I feel she understands my problems.  I really enjoy our conversations and over the years have developed a good relationship."
